Moon over the Mount - with Dr. Chris Graney of the Vatican Observatory

Out of this world fact: the Vatican owns and operates a top-of-the-line Astronomical Observatory, and one of their researchers lives right in our backyard!  Dr. Chris Graney, an adjunct staff at the Vatican Observatory, is a physicist, astronomer, and historian, and he's helped us pick out the best days of the spring to stargaze (or rather moon gaze) up at Mount Saint Francis.

Join us at the Mount for dinner with moon-pies and a telescope stargazing session in the Mount Saint Francis Sanctuary.  Dr. Graney will offer an astronomy presentation, take your questions, and guide us in taking in the beauty of the heavens.
